Plant-parasitic interactions


I am a rising second year undergraduate student at Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge studying biological natural sciences. I went to an international school in Shanghai, China, where I extracurricularly interned at ShanghaiTech University, investigating protein targets as substrates for ubiquitin mediated proteolytic degradation by novel molecular glues.

In my 9 weeks at the CSC, my projects are (1) identifying host immunity altering effectors of plant parasitic nematodes (PPN) and (2) analysing the associations in life-stage dependent expression patterns of putative PPN effectors.
